Maybelline Instant Age Rewind

I may be seeing another "Is It Just Me?" Giveaway in my future!  I wrote recently about my battle with undereye puffiness (see here) and I picked up a few things to help combat the bags.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind is a concealing product with a sponge-tip applicator.  You twist to get product into the sponge, then apply it directly under your eyes and blend with a finger, brush, or the sponge.  Maybelline claims that it erases dark circles, fine lines, and puffiness.

While I do think this is a nice highlighting concealer for the undereye area, I don't really get the hype.  It's nice, but not revolutionary.  It doesn't reduce my puffiness at all and because I don't have fine lines under my eyes, I can't comment on how well it handles those.  I think it's just another basic undereye concealer.

My recommendation is this - if you're looking for a drugstore undereye concealer, give this one a shot.  If you have one that works pretty well for you already, don't waste your money on this.
